Because They Can

Authorities believe Dean Arthur Schwartzmiller, a San Francisco resident, may have molested 36,000 children over the last 35 years. That’s more than three per day. Most of these children have had their lives indelibly stained, many of them ruined, because of this one depraved man and a ridiculous “justice” system that refuses to lock up pedophiles and throw away the key.

Schwartzmiller is just the latest example of the strong taking advantage of the weak to fulfill their own desires: bullies, rapists, robbers, those who would clone and kill the unborn for medical cures. Why do they do these things? Because they can.
